Anna Mahler : ich bin in mir selbst zu Hause( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in German and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anna Mahler wurde 1904 in Wien geboren. Als Tochter von Gustav Mahler und Alma Mahler-Werfel hatte sie es nicht leicht, ihren Platz im Leben zu finden. Trotz großer musikalischer Begabung entschied sie sich für eine Laufbahn als bildende Künstlerin. In Rom studierte sie Malerei bei de Chirico. Doch ihre Leidenschaft waren seit 1931 Steinbildhauerei und Porträt. Anna Mahler war eine äußerst starke Persönlichkeit, sie faszinierte ihre Zeitgenossen durch ihre Schönheit und ihre Klugheit: Elias Canetti hat ihr im >Augenspiel< ein eindrucksvolles literarisches Denkmal gesetzt. Das Buch, das anläßlich ihres 100. Geburtstags im Juni 2004 in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Literaturhaus Wien erscheint, basiert auf internationalen Recherchen und stellt bisher unveröffentlichtes Bild- und Textmaterial vor. Es präsentiert die Grenzgängerin zwischen Kunst, Musik und Literatur in wichtigen Facetten. Als Kind erlebte sie das Entstehen von Kokoschkas >Windsbraut < mit, ihr Stief-Großvater, der Maler und Mitbegründer der Wiener Secession, Carl Moll, vermittelte wichtige künstlerische Eindrücke, ihre erste Schwiegermutter war die Malerin Broncia Koller. In zweiter Ehe war sie mit dem Komponisten Ernst Kr¡enek verheiratet. Es folgte der Verleger Paul Zsolnay. In London heiratete sie den Dirigenten Anatole Fistoulari, und ihre späten Jahre verbrachte sie mit dem Regisseur, Autor und Filmcutter Albrecht Joseph

The cancer ward by Aleksandr Isaevich Solzhenit︠s︡yn( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in German and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A largely autobiographical account of a group of people who pass through the cancer wing of a provincial Soviet hospital in 1955, it is a vivid portrait of individuals in isolation whose collective concern is disease. Through stories of patients and doctors, political prisoners and bureaucrats, the young and the old, it probes the fears and the hopes of an entire cross-section of Soviet society. Cancer ward has been seen as a metaphor for the malignancy afflicting the Russian nation, but the moral and ethical questions it raises-about love and conscience, life and death, spiritual sorrows and triumphs-rise above their immediate political context to assure universal significance. This is the complete unexpurgated edition translated by Nicholas Betthell and David Burg. It includes Solzhenitsyn's world-famous letters to the Fourth Congress of Soviet Writers and the Writers' Union, a transcript of the proceedings of the session of the Soviet Writers' Secretariat, and an afterword by Vladimir Petrov. During February and March of 1955, several men pass through the men's cancer ward in a Soviet hospital

with Adolf Klarmann by Karl Heinrich Rengstorf( )

in German and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Mainly concerns the publication of Zwischen Oben und Unten, a posthumous volume of collected writings by Franz Werfel which was edited by Adolf Klarmann. Included is a publishing contract signed by Klarmann, Anna Mahler and Herbert Fleissner (for Langen Müller Verlag). The letters from and to Vartan Gregorian concern a financial subsidy for the publication of the volume, and an agreement about Gregorian's obtaining a number of reprint copies of Werfel's speech commemorating the Armenian Bible translation ("Festvortrag zur fünfzehnten Jahrhundertfeier der armenischen Bibelübersetzung"), contained in the volume. In the letter to S. Fischer Verlag, directed to the department for honoraria, Klarmann disputes a bill and outlines his previous conflict with S. Fischer Verlag over its failure to publish Zwischen Oben und Unten for many years after his delivery of the manuscript
Diaries, 1898-1902 by Alma Mahler( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The manuscript of Alma Mahler's Diaries, a pile of old exercise books, lay unread and seemingly illegible in the library of an American university. In search of the truth about Alma and Alexander Zemlinsky, Antony Beaumont read them - and found what he was looking for. But he found far more: the authentic saga of one of the century's most charismatic personalities. The Diaries depict in intimate detail the four years during which Alma grew from adolescence into womanhood. Opening with her first, heady affair with Gustav Klimt, they break off shortly before her marriage to Gustav Mahler." "Having come to grips with Alma's handwriting, Beaumont and his co-editor for the German edition, Susanne Rode-Breymann, added meticulously researched commentaries and annotations." --Book Jacket
